Over the past decade, PSG have become one of the wealthiest clubs in the world and have seen many of the world's finest talents moving to the French capital. This summer, Lionel Messi joined a mighty squad with the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappé, and Sergio Ramos. Here, take a look at Paris Saint-Germain's roster for 2021-2022.
The Ligue 1 side has succeeded at the domestic level over the last few years, but it was shocked last season when Lille got away with the league title. Now, however, PSG are looking stronger than ever to get back to local glory, and more importantly, to chase the elusive Champions League trophy.
Curiously, they didn't need to spend loads of money this summer to build an absolutely powerful squad, as they seized the opportunity of landing high-profile players who were available on the market. If their roster seemed outstanding a few months ago, now it's just mind-blowing.
